SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00018 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Requests for additional information or copies of the information collection instrument and instructions should be directed to Marta Gospodarczyk at the contact information given above. Form GC–859 is available on the internet at https://www.eia.gov/survey/#gc-859. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This information collection request contains: (1) OMB No.: 1901–0287. (2) Information Collection Request Title: Nuclear Fuel Data Survey. (3) Type of Request: Renewal. (4) Purpose: The Nuclear Waste Policy Act of 1982 (42 U.S.C. 10101 et seq.) required that the DOE enter into Standard Contracts with all generators or owners of spent nuclear fuel and high-level radioactive waste of domestic origin. Form GC–859 (formerly Form RW–859) originated from an appendix to this Standard Contract. Form GC–859 Nuclear Fuel Data Survey collects information on nuclear fuel use and spent fuel discharges from all utilities that operate commercial nuclear reactors and from all others that possess irradiated fuel from commercial nuclear reactors. The data collection provides stakeholders with detailed information concerning the spent nuclear fuel generated by the respondents (commercial utility generators of spent nuclear fuel and other owners of spent nuclear fuel within the U.S.). Data collected from the survey are utilized by personnel from DOE Office of Nuclear Energy (NE), DOE Office of Environmental Management (EM), and the national laboratories to meet their research objectives of developing a range of options and supporting analyses that facilitate informed choices about how best to manage spent nuclear fuel (SNF). (4a) Proposed Changes to Information Collection • Collection of fuel manufacturer and lattice size used in Section C.1.1 of the 2013 GC–859 will be replaced by fuel assembly type codes in Section C.1.3. Fuel assembly type codes were last collected in the 2003 RW–859. Selection boxes were added to this section to reduce reporting burden. Respondents may mark the fuel assembly type code based on the reactor design, previously used fuel types, range of assembly identification numbers, and initial cycle in core. Identification of fuel assembly type provides significantly more information to analyze the spent fuel. • Cumulative cycle burnup for each assembly is added to Section C.1.2 of the survey. Respondents may voluntarily report this data. Assembly E:\FR\FM\27JYN1.SGM 27JYN1
